Sunday's Obituary - Mrs. Nick Uelman

Unknown Wisconsin newspaper clipping
"Mrs. Nick Uelman [hand-dated Nov. 30, 1961]

Funeral services for Mrs. Nick Uelman, 76, West Bend, who died today at St. Joseph's hospital there, will be Monday at 9 a.m. at Millers Funeral home, Kewaskum, and at 9:30 a.m. at St. Michael's church at St. Michael.  The Rev. Matthew Urban will officiate.

Mrs. Uelman had been in ill health for six months.  She was born April 20, 1885, near St. Killian and lived there until 1921.  Between 1921 and 1958 she resided in the St. Michael area.  She moved to West Bend three and one-half years ago.

In 1908 she married Andrew Delling, who preceded her in death in 1915.  She married Nick Uelmen April 5, 1921, at St. Killian.

Surviving are her widower; one daughter, Mrs. Roman Boegel, Theresa; three step-children, Mrs. Herbert Donath, West Bend, Frank Uelman, West Bend, and Elroy Uelman, West Bend; 13 grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; and two sisters, Mrs. Al Herriges, Wayne Center, and Mrs. Ben Wondra, Theresa.

Friends may call at the funeral home after 2 p.m. Sunday until the time of services."

Very odd that they don't mention her maiden name or parents in the obituary, but I suppose they may not have known (or felt it important).

NOTE:  Surname is spelled Uelman and Uelmen in this article.  I have seen several variations in different articles and memorial cards.
